San Francisco - January 25, 2011

New Relic, Inc., the leading software-as-a-service provider of application performance management (APM) solutions, and PHP Fog, the leading platform-as-a-service provider for PHP web applications, today announced that organizations deploying business-critical web applications on PHP Fog can use RPM Bronze free of charge to monitor app performance 24x7, proactively troubleshoot potential issues, and help them meet high standards for online service delivery. Additionally, PHP support staff can use RPM to share visibility onto the performance of applications and work collaboratively with customers to rapidly solve potential performance issues.

PHP Fog provides simple one-click installations of some of the most popular PHP applications and frameworks, including Drupal, Wordpress, Zend and more. PHP Fog handles deployment, failover, database maintenance, scaling, and all the other plumbing that can take an army of programmers and systems administrators to handle. New Relic RPM is the leading on-demand application performance management service for Ruby, PHP, Java, and .NET. It allows teams to proactively monitor applications in production and troubleshoot potential performance issues before they affect end users. Together, solutions from PHP Fog and New Relic RPM create a powerful combination for successfully deploying and maintain critical online applications.

“More than ever before, organizations are building and deploying PHP web applications that deliver essential online services and must meet very high standards for performance and availability,” said PHP Fog founder Lucas Carlson. “As these companies turn to PHP Fog for reliable and scalable hosting services, the addition of RPM’s monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities offers unbeatable advantages for ensuring their applications are meeting business and performance goals.”

“Since introducing RPM’s PHP web application monitoring capabilities in Q4 of 2010, the response of the PHP community, including leading platform vendors such as PHP Fog, has been tremendously positive,” said Bill Lapcevic, New Relic’s vice-president of business development. “This partnership provides an invaluable opportunity to create a combined solution that better enables today’s application development teams to successfully deploy and manage PHP apps in the cloud.”
